Upon mature reflection maybe not, the seeds of doubt are there still. Next topic please.

As Human urine is rich in nitrogen ,potassium and phosphorus it can be used as a fertilizer, but my concern is the by products from a persons body should they be taking medication, and of course urine has to be diluted with water at least 10.1 only found this out after researching on the net, but I have to agree with you after my comment "not for me" but I still don't think I will be using urine not just yet. but as I said you made a fair comment.

Cheers.

Tawny Owl.

Thats a fact...but the results would have been the opposite if your Dog had been a Bitch...the Grass would have "Yellowed" and eventually died off...

The Question of "Will I or Wont I" all boils down to Mind over Matter {pardon the Pun} its a known fact that every Item we insert in our Mouth has in one way or another come into contact with some form of Chemical/Contamination.IE...Fish...Fruit...Meat ...Poultry... Etc...if we knew the Chemicals used in the majority of Foods I doubt if we would consume any of them...

The lovely looking Meat in the Supermarket...whats used in it to keep its colour ...what Spray was used in the Orchard...Fish from Contaminated Waters/Seas...the list goes on...when you buy Cabbage-Carrots-Spuds they are washed then boiled before use...I dont know if someone has had a Pee on them before hand...neither do you...thats Life...

I dont have a Compost Heap but if I did I'd PEE all over it if I thought it would do any good...Anyone for Dinner... Spuds-Bacon-Cabbage. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

@Geranimojess: for a topic started up by Lius you have contributed an awful lot - have we found your level of humour?
Personally I dilute my urine with large bottles of Guinness, so when I wee all over the garden it kills the slugs too Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

i've a pile of leylandii shreddings which i wizz on. not sure if it will help them break down faster, but i've read that the rotting process uses up nitrogen, so this is one way to replace it.

Interesting Trial...did you think of splitting the Piles and having one with and the other without...that way you'd get a better idea if your idea works...

The Romans used men's urine to bleach their clothes. There were drains along the walkways that men peed into and these drains led to collection tanks in the laundries where the urine was stored to develop ammonia by allowing the urine to react to the air.

So that's another good use for urine, but I'm not going to consider bleaching my shrts in it.
